Veteran 7-string players should absolutely love this! I've held off on buying one for years because they seemed painfully heavy and (to be honest) a little intimidating. Not to mention, setting up floating trems on 6-string guitars is bad enough! However, I am very very happy I took a chance on this one. The instrument is unbelievably lightweight and comfortable to play. In addition, I am really appreciating access to the lower register without big bulky heavy strings (it helps keep notes crisp and distinguishable). While my wrist will still need more time to adjust, I greatly look forward to all the creative possibilities this opens up!
